Deb - Self Portrait

I've always wanted to do a colourful self portrait (as I've seen in Quilting Arts magazines) so when Mary gave us this challenge I knew what I wanted to do.
I took a photo of myself on my iPad and very lightly traced it to use as a template. Then I played with colour! I didn't like the look of my short hair so I played with flowers and leaves. I added some black and white earrings for a bit of contrast. The giraffes on my jumper signify an online class I'm doing at the moment - 'The Year of the Giraffe'.
This is how I'd like to live my life - bright, bold and colourful!!
I hope you like it Mary. I really had fun doing this quilt.
